Virtual Words and Music: Juneteenth
Friday, June 5 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
With the West Medford Community Center closed due to Covid-19, this month’s Words and Music program will be again presented online. The “Words” portion of the program will feature a presentation on the first “Medford Juneteenth” event, which is being planned for later in June. Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day] or Juneteenth independence day, commemorates the June 19, 1865, announcement of the abolition of slavery in Texas, which generally marked the end of slavery nationwide in the U.S.
View the event by going to the West Medford Community Center’s Facebook page, where it will be streamed live. Medford residents with cable TV can also watch the program live (Ch. 3 on Comcast and Ch. 47 on Verizon).
West Medford Community Center launched Words and Music in 2017. Usually presented on the first Friday of every month, the event starts off with a discussion on a valuable aspect of the community, followed by a performance by a local musician or musicians.
